To maximize the impact of pro bono engagement by connecting a network of volunteer attorneys with nonprofits in need of free business legal services.
Who We Assist
We assist 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that serve low-income or disadvantaged individuals and are unable to pay for legal services. Our clients work to improve the lives of the homeless, domestic violence survivors, at-risk youth, senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and other groups in need.
How We Do It
We match eligible organizations with volunteer attorneys from the leading corporations and law firms in Atlanta. Our staff screens the nonprofits and identifies their legal needs, then matches eligible clients with attorneys who have the appropriate expertise.
Our volunteer attorneys assist nonprofits with business legal matters in areas including:
- Corporate Governance
- Contracts and Leases
- Trademarks & Copyrights
- Tax Compliance
Our volunteers are primarily transactional attorneys at law firms and corporations. We provide them with rewarding pro bono opportunities in their area of expertise, whether that be corporate, contracts, employment, healthcare, intellectual property, real estate, tax, bankruptcy or technology.
What We’ve Done
Since our launch in late 2005, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta has assisted 600 nonprofit organizations with over 3,000 different legal matters. Over 1,500 attorneys have volunteered their services to Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta clients. In 2012 alone, the direct legal services provided to nonprofit organizations by our volunteer attorneys were valued at over $2 million.
